You need to understand that we are in the world, but not of the world. This is because our home is in heaven.
Now, since we are citizens of heaven here on earth, it would only be proper to state that earth must be conducive enough for us to be able to accomplish our God given mandates- implying that heaven can be found on earth, but no earth in heaven (as we are not from earth in heaven). This is why in the final days, everything will pass away,but for the word of God that remains.
Remember, in the beginning of creation, we were created in the image and likeness of God, and the Word of God is God, because, in the beginning was the Word and the word was with God and the Word was God- the same Word became flesh, and we know only Jesus who is God became flesh for our sins, then, if this is true(and it is true), it means that we are the image of the Word; and so, if the Word remains, so do we… eternally(though it depends were some people’s eternity will be(hell I mean)but for us(that have been saved by grace) and you that is willing to become the son of God (therefore not being of this world), we have our eternity returning back home as worthy ambassadors.
Note, He came to the world and the world knew him not, this is only because He isn’t one of them- but to those that accepted Him; this means that there are people in the world who have also realised that they are not from the world- and so recognised Him when He came, because they are from the same place…
While there is no world in the word, the word can be found in the world, therefore, if your desire is to go back to heaven (where there is no earth), stop doing earthly things(things that don’t glorify God) and start doing heavenly things(things that glorify God). I’m sure you get the idea… a godly lifestyle is still possible in our generation.
Remember, while coming to earth is not much of a choice, going back to heaven is. It’s yours to choose today- God gave us that choice!
Would you be so kind as to let me deliver a brief message to you…
Good day sir/ma,
if you would like to know more about the idea of heaven and how to eternally be in Christ, kindly visit my YES TO JESUS page immediately, and if you have accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and saviour (which means you’re sure of heaven) then witness this truth to others as the crown of soul willing awaits you in heaven…
Thank you and God bless.

If as a gentleman you are in a relationship with a lady that dresses half naked (exposes her body, in other words, dresses indecently) and you have not spoken to her, even though she shows everyone what you are meant to later see all alone in your marriage, then you do not love but only lust after her to an extent; the other part is that you are suffering from low self-esteem. The standard to which she meets with you and your friends is her nudity. She does not look presentable if she’s well dressed (or you would have told her) to your friends, or else, why haven’t you told her? Remember everyone presents the best of what he has when it comes to showing people… This will be understood by only those with a foundation.
Isn’t it funny how you can almost come to church early just so you can almost seat in front…
Have you understood the bible so much that it’s only your understanding that is correct, even the leading of the Holy Spirit, the appropriate prescription to understanding the bible is wrong? Who do you think you are, a fool? “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1st Corinthians 2:14”…no wonder you read the bible and still say there is no God.
Speaking biochemistry terms to a computer science student makes no sense unless someone or something in biochemistry explains it to him, likewise God; His ways are not our ways, to understand Him you don’t ask man because he would not know, he can only try, only the Holy Spirit can tell you the ways of God, as He is God, so when an honest man tries, it’s through the leading of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, in other for the bible to make sense to you, ask the Holy Spirit not your brain…
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2nd Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
John 14:26 NKJV
The above quotations are on the basis of the Christian faith. We are God’s creation and the manual to understanding our essence and every thing in existence is the bible which has a prescription to reading it.
